WEB: ASRock MSRP: US $299.99 | AUTHOR: Neo

Here we are with the ASRock X570 Taichi, just over a full month after the launch of AMD’s 3rd generation Ryzen CPUs and the matching X570 chipset. Truth be told, it definitely feels like it’s been much longer than a month. As we’ve come to expect with AMD platform launches, plenty of updates coming in fast. Each successive update bringing stability and compatibility improvements. This latest entry in the ASRock X570 Taichi is easily my favorite X570 motherboard thus far. As such, we decided this would be a great candidate for an OC review.
